The French embassy in Tripoli opened its doors Monday, after it was closed in July 2014 due to the deteriorating security situation.
The French ambassador to Libya, Beatrice du Hellen announced her arrival in Tripoli, Monday, to reopen the embassy, and the embassy’s Facebook account published photos of the opening moments.
The Media Center of the National Unity Government quoted the ambassador as saying, “I am determined to work with full force to strengthen relations with the Libyan authorities and the Libyan people who hosted me.”
Last Tuesday, French President Emmanuel Macron said that his country would reopen its embassy in Tripoli, in an indication of the gradual return of stability to the country after years of conflict.
The Head of the Presidential Council, Mohamed Menfi, confirmed in a press conference from Paris that, starting from Monday, the French embassy in Libya will be opened.
